Watch seagulls soaring while you stroll around this popular spot, part of the revived Duluth waterfront. Nearby are a sculpture garden, jazz clubs, coffee shops, motels and restaurants. If you like ships, stand on the pier and watch huge boats and ships, some from around the world, come and go daily.

A great place to take in the view and do a little shopping. Plenty of food options all around. I do not recommend Grandma's though, a let down.

We love canal park. From walking out to the lighthouse, watching the lift bridge rise and fall, witnessing ships departure to visiting the Lake Superior Maritime Museum, it sets the tone for the power and majesty if the Big Lake. ❤️

The Lake-walk is always great and we enjoy it every time we visit the canal. Our issue is the parking! Not enough of it and what is in the area is expensive and the Duluth police seem to enjoy giving the tickets....they seem to cruise...More

Surrounded by shops and restaurants, this is the main tourist area in Duluth. Great to just walk around and learn some history, watch huge ships come in and grab something to eat.

I don't believe that Tall Ships Duluth is an event held every year, it seems that it is every 2-3 years on the Great Lakes. Duluth was 2013, and 2016.
